Re: No place but Houston

If you remember the mayor asked for a property tax increase while people were filling their front yards with the wet remnants of their lives after Harvey. He has not done so while people are still dying from the Coroanavirus. Yeppers; and he's probably pretty upset that he can't; he wishes the fisc...

Re: No place but Houston

Not unsurprisingly under years of "Royal Blue" leadership, comes this headline: " Houston Faces Worst Budget Crisis In Modern History ." Tax revenue has plummeted, the city is facing the worst budget crisis in living memory, and officials are warning to expect across-the-board cuts in city services....

Not mean streets as in violence, but about as mean-spirited and unthinking as you can get. https://abc13.com/woman-driving-over-headstones-mothers-day-houston-video/6170411/ Amanda Hill and her family went to the Houston National Cemetery on Sunday to watch the Lone Star Flight Museum flyover, comme...

Re: Which Glock to buy?

I’d go for the 17. Yeppers; I'd agree. I think everyone should own a G17...I do, but have never carried it. Not my fave. But it is by a lot of accounts the most prolific handgun in the world. The old Soviet Makarov in 9mm short may rival total numbers manufactured, but certainly not in current use ...

Re: TX: Do not sell a gun to a man with a man bun

Caveat, there is a gentleman who lives just outside college station who I would sell to again in a heartbeat.. his man bun, along with his 400ish pound physique and bad habit of wearing towels in public are cultural.
